California: 1 million clean-energy jobs are on the line.

Authors: Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins We sent this call to action out to our folks in California this morning... 1 million clean-energy jobs are on the line. A key amendment to the Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act could create 1 million new jobs in the clean-energy economy, by requiring utilities to invest in energy-efficiency renovations for millions of buildings nationwide. But utility companies are pressuring California Senator Barbara Boxer, who co-sponsored the bill, to reject the amendment. These companies prefer giveaways with no strings attached. Let's tell Senator Boxer what the people of California want.

Call Senator Boxer now. Tell her to support 1 million clean-energy jobs, not giveaways to utilities.

Next week is critical, as the Environment and Public Works Committee begins to "mark-up" its version of the bill. Senator Boxer needs to hear from us now. Thank you for taking action and working to create a better future for all of us. Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins Chief Executive Officer Green For All P.S. After you call, please sign our twitter petition to Senator Boxer.
